Art is a Reflection of Time
In our second intensive art history lecture series, we will explore the artists of the Baroque Age, and will contrast the drama they represent with what we've already studied this year. For the most part, art reflects the social and economic circumstances of the time in which it was made. Few eras in art history demonstrate this as well as the Baroque Age, especially when it's compared with the stability and idealistic imagery of the High Renaissance.
